    Recommendation needed!

    Hello guys
    I need your recommendation on what colour pants to wear with a dark brown sport coat? I have to attend a dinner meeting out of my city next week. I want to wear the sport coat instead of suit so please let me know if you have any good recommendation for me. And also please tell me if you know any good Sports store in UK.

    Thank you!

    And remember to look to opposite way when crossing the road, we drive on the left here! (BTW pants in the UK is a slang term for underwear , just in case.)

    Phil Lynott complained of "always getting chocolate stains on his pants". That'll teach him to take his trousers off in the cinema...

    Tan or mid-grey should work fine.

    Brown sport coat? For sure dark brown shorts.

    Yeah, tan to medium brown slacks should work fine.

    Yes. Obviously make sure the brown of the pants is distinct enough from the brown of the coat that it doesn't look like it's supposed to match. Other than that, you have a lot of freedom there.

    +1 Mid-grey looks great with almost every sportcoat. If it doesn't...get rid of the sportcoat.
